Beer5000 (5205) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Murky brown body with a small beige head. Nice aroma of malt and chocolate with some acidity. Flavor has a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, quite sweet, but does not feel sticky in the mount. Taste of dark malt, caramel, chocolate, a hint of vinegar and warming alcohol, more alcohol in the aftertaste. Full body. This is a really tasty and complex brew.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2012
0,5 L bottle. An unclear deep reddish brown body, under a ring of sand-colored bubbles. Sweet dark caramel and dark dried fruits to the nose. Some barrel notes and faint alcohol too. More than medium full. Thick and juicy in the mouth. Rich malt flavor. Sweet, with burnt caramel and jammy dark fruits. Distinct barrel notes, and a good amount of bittering hops in the backbone. Warming, rich bitter-sweet aftertaste. A balanced, tasty, and dangerously easy drinkable Quad.

Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. It pours a more or less black body, at least dark, dark brown, and is topped by a finger-thick beige head. The aroma has less alcohol than I’d expect from the ABV level, with some oak, dark berries, caramel and roased malts. Sweet and warming on the palate, wtih caramel, berries, some roasted malts and a hint of something reminiscent of pancakes. Full body, finishing bitter and warming, with a pleasant sweetness. Overall, too warm and sweet, but it’s a complex and tasteful beer anyway. 120504

The beer is dark amber in color with an off-white head. A touch boozy on the nose with some caramel, wood, bourbon, and maple syrup notes. Just very sweet, but pretty nice. The flavor is similarly heavy on the sweetness. Tons of caramel, maple syrup, and vanilla. A bit of sweet wine and wood, too.

Boutip (5272) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark brown color ale with medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt based with lots of residual sugar and some dry fruit s notes with some easily discernable woody notes and light vinous feel. Taste is also dominated by some woody notes with a big sweet malt base with toffee and dry fruits notes. The red wine notes are also easily discernable without being too tart. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with not much alcohol being apparent. Complex but also a bit too sweet to appreciate a large quantity of that liquid.

Bouteille de 500ml partagée avec Patrick. Bière brune foncée avec une mousse beige, cette mousse est mince. Le nez est agréable de fruits secs, de sucre brun, de cassonade et une touche d’alcool (14% ça parait). La bouche est fort agréable avec des fruits secs, de la tire d’érable, caramel, toffee, cassonade, de la vanille du fût de chêne qui est très bien intégré, pas agressif mais présent. La texture est belle avec une finale quasi huileuse. 7+

gunnar (6736) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2013
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours dark as Coke with a small light tanned head. Aroma of malt, molasse and berries. Taste of sweet berries, malts and even some nice liquorice. Very good one, complex but good.

Bottle shared at Craft Clerko, from thanks to Paulo - he had 5 guys the other night apparently ! 25/10/13. Lightly hazed chestnut brown with a thin light beige covering. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, oaky wood, tarte fruit notes, red wine, jammy soured berry mash. Taste comprises brown sugars, jammy fruit, booze soaked oak, red wine streak, dark tofffee. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming alcohol in the finish. Decent enough Quad, could not believe this was a 14% big boy - very well integrated.

Torrefacto (1037) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2013
Color caoba oscuro, reflejos rojizos muy tupido. Espuma color crema. Aromas de frutas confitadas, licor, naranja. En boca es de sabor potente y densos con trazos dulces y afrutados que se completa con t¡rasgos ácidos. Muy rica, pero no parece una belga, casi me recuerda más a una barley wine.
